What Does Love Mean?: Part Two

Written by Braiden Rex-Johnson on February 6, 2012

In our February 2 blog post, we started a list of more than 20 ways in which young children discuss the meaning of love. Here are numbers six through 10.

6. ‘Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.’ Danny – age 7

7. ‘Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss’ Emily – age 8

8. ‘Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.’ Bobby – age 7 (Wow!) ‘

9. If you want to learn to love better , you should start with a friend who you hate.’ Nikka – age 6 (we need a few million more Nikka’s on this planet)

10. ‘Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt , then he wears it everyday.’ Noelle – age 7 ‘
